a series of works using common craft , industrial, household and found materials to create kinetic sculptures. Rapillard asks the viewer to interact or “create” the work as opposed to solely looking at it. These pieces are small, colorful and toy-like in nature beckoning the inner child in the observer.

Mixed media sculptures
a series of balancing sculptures created as a subtle reminder to stay in mental and physical equilibrium. That no matter how large or irregular an object is, there remains a center on which it balances perfectly without force.
